The Lowest of Lows

That's right- last night I weighed in at my lowest weight: 180.6 lbs (-2.4lbs)

I felt completed defeated when I got home from work yesterday- I just wanted to go to sleep. I was already planning to get into my pajamas, skip my workout, and not cook dinner. I remembered to weigh myself, and it was exactly what I needed after that rough day.

Seeing my lowest weight since beginning my weightloss journey, motivated me to march myself to the bedroom and change into my workout gear. I completed Level 3 of the Shred. I've been doing a really good job of keeping up with my exercise DVDs since I decreased my running last month. I did the Banish Fat and Boost Metabolism and the No More Trouble Zones DVDs this weekend.

I really want to see myself leave the 180's. I have been stuck in them since February. It's amazing how I fly through some weight decades in a matter of 3 weeks (the 210's and the 190's) and have to fight my way out of others for 6 months (the 200's and the 180's).

I sure want this to be the last week EVER that I am in the 180's!

It's amazing what a number on the scale can do to our motivation (both positively & negatively!). Keep up the great work & soon we'll both be saying BYE BYE BYE to the 180s for good!!!!
Ok now I have NSync in my head...

Sometimes I like it when the scale leaves me right there on the cusp of another "decade." It provides super motivation for that coming week because I just want to plow through that barrier.

Kudos on the loss, and congratulations in advance for next week's triumphant charge into the 70's.

Ashley, I'm so proud of you! Not only have you worked SO hard to get to 180, but you took that momentum and went and did Level 3 of the Shred instead of going and celebrating with wine or cupcakes. Yay you. I hope the 170's are a quicker decade for you. :)
